3.55 kmeaw vs 3.55 DEX?
3.55 kmeaw vs 3.55 DEX? –
I'm on kmeaw, i really need to play god of war 3 which doesnt work discless (my laser's busted) and i was told DEX runs it discless
after some researching i understood abit about DEX
is 3.55 DEX the same as kmeaw? can i run backups via MM just like i do on kmeaw?
and WTF is the CEX? original kmeaw?
DEX is Debug and CEX is Retail, if you install a modified DEX firmware then yes it's the same as Kmeaw, it just gives you the option of updating to a higher firmware to play newer games then you can go back down again to 3.55 to use backup managers
So if i install 3.55 DEX using your tutorial (its great btw) is just like having kmeaw and i can use mm to play backups while on the debug MFW?
i thought you could only have x amount of games playable on dex consoles or have i missed something here lol
But some places says that if using 3.55 version of dex FW you can play almost all, that's why im asking
you are correct, i think you will need ps3gen and then dl an update for the game to work. use the ps3 game updater tool to get your updates. then install 3.55 dex CFW its really not that hard to do now because of the eid-RK dumper.pkg or w.e
but to answer your question... yes all games /should/ works discless once you install and update. use ps3gen to format the hdd into 4 partitions and then generate an iso to the hdd.
Even with the 3.55 dex i need to do the 4 partitions/4games trick?
doesnt formating the hdd ruin somthing in the system files? or do you mean an external HDD?
On 3.55 DEX CFW with Peek and Poke you can run games from your internal harddrive with your chosen backup manager just like you could on 3.55 CEX CFW. But you can only play 3.55/3.60 games or earlier by this method because the keys for those games are known and the kernel can be patched. To play games greater than that, you have to upgrade your DEX firmware to a newer version - of which the keys are not known. The backup managers can not run these games in the same way as they can on CFW 3.55. But the official Sony Debug firmwares actually have their own method of running discless versions of games. And that involves specially formatting/partitioning an external drive via PS3Gen or the firmware itself, modifying some files (one of which must be a game update), repackaging them into a bootable iso and putting that in one of the external drive's special partitions. You have to change a few emulator options in the Debug Settings on the PS3 before the games can be play from the external drive. If the game has no version update, this method does not work, as of yet.

Need Shaitan's answer on this one cuz he told me GoW3 runs on dex.
Sorry about the late reply, been having computer issues. I've done some testing and all games I've tried(3.55 compatible) work discless this way: Make a ps3gen compatible partition on an external, it doesn't matter what game it is, I used a 4gb thumb drive formatted on the ps3(because ps3gen would make 4 1gb partitions instaed of 1 4gb one) and loaded SAW just because it's so small, then go to Debug settings and enable BD Emulator and chang Transfer Rate to HDD Native so the ps3 see's it as a retail disc then load the game, in your case God of War 3, in multiman and it should let you run the game "discless". Let me know how it goes.
